Journey “pretty much perfect”, unlikely to birth a sequel

Wednesday, 6th March 2013 05:01 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Journey executive producer Robin Hunicke has said the award-winning adventure probably won’t see a follow up.

Speaking to IGN at the BAFTAs last night, where Journey took five awards, Hunicke said the team behind the game consider the game just right.

“I think we all put a lot of heart and soul into Journey, so we’d like to leave it where it is. It’s pretty much perfect the way it is, we don’t want to mess with that so I would imagine there would be no Journey 2,” she said.

Thatgamecompany went bankrupt making the PlayStation 3 exclusive Journey despite its incubation inside Sony Santa Monica, and many of its staffers, including Hunicke herself, moved onto other projects.

The independent team has never made a sequel and debuted new kinds of game with each release. Founder and leader Jenova Chen is hoping the next project will be commercially successful, and employ touch controls.

    If The Last Guardian never sees the light of least there was Journey. As epic as TLG looked, I believe Journey succeeded (for me at anyway) in offering the same emotional and imaginative experience that TLG would have. Its not “pretty much perfect”, it is indeed perfect. You can not find one flaw with the game.

    I didn’t like this game very much. Music is great but gameplay is shallow.

    One of the best games I’ve played. Cannot wait to see their next project!

    Completely immersed from the first few seconds. I might give this another play through later :)

    It’s perfect the way it is. A sequel is unnecessary, it would ruin the whole meaning of the game.

    Anyway. Perfect answer from Robin to a more then perfect title we won’t ever see again in our lifetime.

    Totally missed the spot for me. Nice music though. But that didn’t justify the 10 squids cost.
